Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has directed an investigation into the allegations of financial mismanagement rocking the State College of Education, Ila-Orangun.

It was alleged that a sum of N200 million had been mismanaged under the current Governing Council of the College led by Dr Peter Babalola, about five months after assumption of office.

In reaction to the allegation, Adeleke in a statement by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, obtained in Osogbo on Tuesday, said he has directed that his Chief of Staff, Mr. Kazeem Akinleye, should lead a committee to investigate the matter.

The statement further read, “The Committee also included the Secretary to the State Government and Commissioner for Education among others to host a crisis resolution meeting between the school management and the Governing Council.”
